Arrest Made In Amanda Gonzalez-Andujar Murder

The po-po's have finally caught up with the waste of DNA who allegedly strangled 29 year old transwoman Amanda Gonzales-Andujar

Rasheen Everett of Manhattan was tracked down and arrested in Las Vegas on April 9 and brought back to New York Tuesday to face charges. He's also wanted in Brockton, MA for attempting to murder his ex-wife.

Everett is charged him with second-degree murder and tampering with physical evidence.

FYI people, since GENDA hasn't been passed in New York State, Everett isn't eligible for hate crimes charges.

Remember, thanks to Matt Foreman and company dumping trans people back in the day in order to pass the gay only hate crimes law, we ain't covered. Even if trans people were included in current hate crimes law, no evidence has surfaced to elevate this crime to that level.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown stated that according to the criminal charges, Everett went the apartment of Amanda Gonzalez Andujar in Glendale, Queens, at 8:50 AM on March 27.

Witnesses heard screams and banging consistent with a struggle moments later, and Everett exited the building alone several hours later carrying two bags.

It's suspected Andujar's computer was in one of the bags to conceal the e-mail communication between the suspect and her.

Before exiting the apartment he poured bleach over her body. The autopsy confirmed Andujar died from manual neck compression.

If convicted, Everett faces up to 25 years to life in prison. Anybody wanna bet that his defense attorney plays the 'trans panic defense' card in this case?

I hope not, but I get more cynical with each year that passes.

At any rate, here's hoping that Amanda gets justice.
